What's a Writeboard?

Writeboards are sharable, web-based text documents that let you save every edit, roll back to any version, and easily compare changes. Use Writeboard to write solo or collaborate with others.

Everyone on your account can view all Writeboards from the Writeboards tab.

Every time you save a change to a writeboard, a new version of that writeboard is created in the sidebar. This allows you to go back to previous versions at anytime. The sidebar lists the version number (the latest version 7, in this case, is always listed at the top), when it was last saved, and who saved it. The dots indicate the relative change to the writeboard. The bigger the change from the previous version the bigger the dot. This allows you to quickly spot big (or small) changes without having to read each version.

Check the checkboxes in front of two versions and click the compare button to see what’s new and different between the two versions (see tour #6). You’ll also find a quick link to compare this version with the previous saved version.

Anyone with access to the writeboard can leave comments without editing the actual writeboard text. This allows you to collaborate, discuss changes before you make them, or just converse about the text without making changes.
